The CNBC implosion continues

Just imagine if Rick Santelli had appeared on The Daily Show!

You'll recall, CNBC's pundit was booked to do the Jon Stewart's show following Santelli's misinformed rant about "loser" home owners. At the last minute, CNBC flacks pulled the plug on that idea, which I think saved the biz channel profound humiliation.

Not sure why the same CNBC flacks thought it was a good idea to have Jim Cramer appear on Stewart's show last night. (See below.) Because it was pretty much an epic embarrassment for the biz channel.

Who didn't see that coming?
